    Yea but theres a couple of problems with that, Most of the boys from my hood only read the news and once they find out that the phone becomes like new after entering in the wrong password 10 times thy're going to target anybody with one. hold on tight ladies and gents and watch your sh**. That wouldnt be something i'd want to advertise honestly.

    Most thieves could care less about your information on the phone especially when they can get 200 to 600 for the phone itself.

    i don't own an Blackberry, so I wouldn't know. I'd prefer if there we some sort of OTA code AT&T could send to the phone that could unlock it and allow you to reset the password.

    the data wipe thing just sounds like something that can be easily abused.

    but hey...if it's the industry standard, perhaps it'll be a non-issue.

    it's a 4 digit passcode. if you don't think you'd remember it, definitely don't use it. no one's forcing you to unless it's for work. then your it policy may require it. plus, the data wipe is actually an option and not forced on you so. you do have a choice

    Successfully updated from 2.0.2 pwned to 2.1 on my 1st generation iPhone, end result is my iPhone is still unlocked and activated, Good luck guys.

    if you get stuck at the boot logo, then don't restore from backup. Setup as new iPhone then select sync contacts from this computer. It took me 4 tries to figure this out.

    That was the first though that crossed my mind. They just changed the way the bars were displayed to shut people up. Look ive got more bars now! he haw!
    My 3G usually displayed 1-3 bars but I could still download at 450kbs, so i wasnt to worried about it

    Successfully updated from 2.0.2 previously winpwned with 2.5 beta to new 2.1 on my 1st generation iPhone using iTunes 8 update procedure, end result is my iPhone is still unlocked and activated.

    Seems very stable, yes will have to wait to jailbreak, but will see what 2.1 offers.

    Thats a d** shame, And the fact that their were two diffrent uploads 1 for edge and another for 3g made it all the easier for em to do it. Apple & ATT are desperate to get out of a couple of lawsuits regard the 3G servies so it wouldnt suprise me that they'd do something underhandedly to save their on hide.

    I got it.. damn i had to do 5 restores before i figured just start a new phone instead of use existing back up.

    Iphone 3g / 16 gb white
    Jailbroken 2.0.2 firmware with winpwn 2.5
    iTunes 8.0

    and i upgraded but i guess something stopped the upgrade and completely just stopped working.. i restored it to default 2.1 but lost everything. =/

    man i wanna update baddd cuz my phones is sloww but i dont wanna give up all my cracked apps... does anybody know if theres another way to SSH into your iphone without installing SSH from cydia/installer? if i can just get in and replace my mobileinstallion file so i can use my cracked apps i would sooo update...but then again cycorder and snapture are soo nice..i'll wait unless someone has a way of using SSH without jailbreaking first, which i doubt anybody does...

    but maybe knows of a program thats lets you browse and edit/replace files in a non-jailbroken iphone? maybe ixfer?
